— Khmer Rouge soldier on Pol Pot
To destroy you is no loss, to spare you is no gain.
— Khmer Rouge motto
The Khmer Rouge were a band of communist inspired Cambodian rebels, with nationalist ideals, that were formed in the late 1960's by Communist revolutionaries Saloth Sar (later Pol Pot), Ieng Sary, Son Sen and Khieu Samphan and were most remembered for their social engineering, which resulted in genocide. The group was exiled in the reign of Cambodian monarch, Prince Norodom Sihanouk in 1968 and remained relatively unknown until the eve of the Vietnam War. During the Vietnam War, Viet Cong forces established bases inside neutral Cambodia. After the Tet Offensive, the President of the United States, Richard Nixon, ordered a top secret bombing raid called Operation Menu. The bombing raids were to destroy Vietnamese bases on Cambodia’s eastern border with Vietnam. Unfortunately, the bombing raids hit Cambodian villages on the border as well; this was what the Khmer Rouge used to bring the people on their side. In 1970, the left wing monarch, Sihanouk, was ousted by a military led coup by General Lon Nol, who was pro-US. Under Lon Nol, the US airstrikes ramped up to attempt to destroy the Khmer Rouge bases. That same year, the Khmer Rouge launched a civil war against the Nol regime.

After five years of civil war, the Khmer Rouge won and started to purge the country of those classed as enemies. They started by exterminating the sympathisers of the previous regime and non-Khmer people, including Vietnamese and half-Khmer peoples, before attempting to bring Cambodia back to the days of the Khmer Empire by turning it into an agrarian communist country. They believed that the only way to restore Cambodia to its medieval splendour was to put everyone to work in the fields farming rice.

Civilians' lives were viewed as expendable. It was this mindset which was what caused the deaths of an estimated 2.2 million people; most of which were done in high schools turned interrogation centres. Fortunately, they were taken out of power in 1979 by the Vietnamese, who were tired of the now frequent Cambodian raids across the border. However, groups of Khmer Rouge still existed until 1998, when the leadership collapsed. Since then, Cambodia has started to recover. Pol Pot died on April 15th, 1998, and surviving Khmer Rouge leaders have been or will be put on trial.

Expert's OpinionEdit

This was SS' fight to win, as Khmer Rouge didn't really have much training unlike their opponents, as well as only killed people in the streets, not in war. The Waffen SS also had better weaponry.

One of them enters the building Gaddafi was in armed with his Cane Knife. He walks up a flight of stairs. Unluckily for him, he made noise and alerted an Amazon Guard soldier hiding in the room.

She picks out her Makarov and looks out the window, seeing a Khmer Rouge member trying to come into the building. She fires her Makarov out of the window, alerting the guerrilla.

They are spotted by the two remaining Amazon Guard members. One of them throws their knife into the back of a Khmer Rouge soldier. KHMER ROUGE: 1. The other Khmer Rouge guerrilla fires his RPD in a "spray and pray" mindset. One of the Amazon Guard members draws her pistol and walks into the building. She flips him over and puts her knife to his throat. She slashes and blood spurts into her face. The two soldiers meet up and go look for their boss.


Expert's OpinionEdit

The Amazon Guard won a very lopsided fight. All of the voters agree that their training and superior weaponry would win them the fight. It would be an estimated 68% to 32%

Expert's Opinion Edit

The Taliban won due to overwhelming firepower, weaponry and X-Factors. While the Khmer Rouge were fanatical, they could not stop the extremist organisation from claiming victory. To see the original votes, battle and weapons, click here

The Somali Pirate raised his revolver and shouted in victory.

Expert's OpinionEdit

The Khmer Rouge didn't have the training or experience of the Somali Pirates, yet their long range rifle was their biggest weakness. Also they were mostly  young students. In the end the X-factors were in favour of the Somali Pirates.
